Patient Rating

Legacy wants every patient to have great care, every time. To help measure and improve patient satisfaction, we send surveys to randomly selected patients after their appointments. We use this feedback from the surveys to improve and enhance the care we offer. It works like this: Real patients give us feedback through Press Ganey, a patient satisfaction survey company. They verify and confirm the results. National Research Corporation, an independent company, provides the technology to show the ratings and comments on our website

My Doctor was not in the day I called asking if I could get in that day, and they were able to get me in to see Dr. Hochenedel. I had tripped and fallen and am very sore. This was the first time I saw this Doctor. He was friendly and very nice. He did an exam of my injury and said he thought I should have x-rays and I agreed. I felt confidence in his knowledge and care.

Since the office has switched to Legacy, the front facing staff have not been as professional than before and turnover seems higher - like always someone new. This combination has the effective of distancing the patient from Legacy (the system); it does not affect the doctor-patient bond. Most patient interactions, however, are not Dr-Patient but with Legacy the system. While I value my doctor, I have a growing distaste for Legacy and their provider network

I appreciated being notified the doctor would be delayed for my appointment after only a ten minute wait.

Since I could not get an immediate appointment with my regular doctor, I was delighted to get an appointment with Dr. Hochenedel as I met with him once years ago and trust his evaluation, diagnosis and judgment.

dr hochenedel is the best doctor I've ever had. he has superb knowledge, patience, and compassion for my health concerns, and truly listens for my understanding and "buy in" when discussing courses of action. I've never felt rushed or unimportant, and I will continue to see him for as long as possible

I saw Dr. Hochenedel to ask for a referral for weight loss surgery. He understood what I wanted and why and made an appropriate referral. He also answered my questions about his experience with other patients having had similar surgery and their general outcomes.

Dr. Hochenedel was very respectful and listened carefully while I explained a recent family crisis. He also took special note of a couple of health concerns and gave good advice and referrals. His nurse was very helpful in assisting me to get set up in the on line "My Legacy Health" system.

I started my appointment on time and everyone in the office was very professional. For my first request for a referral the time for the get the referral took longer than I expected. This was due to the office having a large backlog at the time. Since that first time, the referrals have been immediate and I'm happy with that.

Excellent physician. Would have preferred that he accepted MODA insurance as I am a retired [details deleted to protect privacy]. I had to drop it in order to go to him and now my pharmacy benefits are poor, with Providence Health Care.

I felt that Dr. Hochenedel brought my healthcare to a high level of care through many tests that were needed for a complete picture of my current state of health. I like this Doctor and have had him for many years. I've even changed from Providence to Regence B/CB/S so that I could have him as my Physician.

The receptionist must have been new, she keep telling me I was on Medicare, only one wellness exam in 12 month period, whereas my insurance told me if I got an exam in Dec. and wanted another wellness exam in Jan. of the following year it would be okay, she didn't seem to have a lot of knowledge and keep repeating herself

I have been seeing Dr. Hochenedel for 15 years at Westside Internal Medicine, and this last visit may have been the easiest, least frustrating visit I have ever had at ANY health care provider. It was prompt, respectful, and thorough.

Dr was very interested and attentive in listening to my issues, explaining possible causes and solutions. He followed up on actions from our prior appointments. Listened, examined, and then Provided referral to the surgeon of prior hernia surgery (primary issue/problem). Provided direction on self-monitoring my High Blood Pressure, using portable monitor. His attention to my needs/issues resulted in a good experience.

The staff was very professional, courteous and helpful. And when I needed to make an appointment afterwards was very accomodating. The doctor was kind, had great listening skills and was open and honest regarding questions I had concerning my health. Importantly, I did not feel rushed through the exam.

I think Dr. Hochenedel is there for me when I need him taking the time and making sure to see me if I need to be seen. He listens well and does not brush over my concerns. He seems to be very complete which I greatly appreciate and expect. If I need a referral he is on top of that. He has very good bedside manner which I feel alot of physicians seem to overlook. In the last year he has improved his staff. I have relied on them to call about prescriptions or touch base with him for me. I feel fortunate to have a physician like Dr. Hochenedel in charge of my health care.
